The End* is near and there are signs all over the place. In an effort to help my readers better understand when their own end is near I've compiled a list of occurrences and observations of my own, and you can compare these items with what's going on in your life:
(*The end of school, not the apocalypse)
You accidentally hurt yourself and you secretly hope it requires immediate, medical attention.
After three o'clock is not for anything other than what I call "Summer Practice" as in practicing for summer, not practice that happens during the summer.
High gas prices notwithstanding, weekends are spent driving far distances.
Dinging bells send you into convulsions.
Time out is for you, not them.
Much of your time is spent meditating on a certain small central Texas town and the service which they provide.
More time is spent making use of said service
Work is a misnomer
You see the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse and just laugh (Again, still talking about the end of school.)
You find yourself saying things like, "Go tell your principal what I called you. See if I care."
You watch The Office and think, "Office jobs sound like fun."
Review week is more like two.
And last but not least
You reconsider your position on capital punishment.
I am an artist, storyteller and entertainer. A teacher, a servant, husband and friend. I don't like to judge or to spend too much time focusing on things that I don't have the power to change, but embrace change in myself, for I think God will judge me on how I managed my own heart.
